    Mrs. Kate and her Dairy Queen are a legend. I worked for her for a few years during my teens and thoroughly enjoyed every minute. Kate never made it feel like work and was a fun, patient and kind boss. She trained a lot of Bibb County teens how to work hard and have fun while working. Go rest high Kate until we meet again.
